Google Glass Finishes Year Strong – Wink, Wink
For those of you who are part of the wearable Technorati and are looking for the next great thing maybe the updates to Google Glass that The Verge is reporting are for you.
Google is closing out 2013 in a big way for Google Glass users. December’s monthly software update adds several popular feature requests, including a new wink gesture for taking photos, full Hangouts support, and video uploading to YouTube. Google is also introducing a new way of securing Glass that it says is equivalent to a smartphone’s lock screen. Instead of entering a PIN (or pattern, as Android users are accustomed to), you can now choose to unlock Glass with a “secret Google handshake” that’s basically a sequence of taps and swipes.
I was just listening to Bob Dylan sing “Don’t want to wink at anybody, don’t want to be winked at” (total coincidence, honest, from Slow Train Coming CD, track “Do Right To Me Baby”). I guess Bob wouldn’t like the new world order of the wink pic, huh?
What about you?
